Phew, I’ve been busy. I have so many updates to post about before I can’t even think of tackling a new home related project quite yet. All in due time, my friends. All in due time. But for now, I wanted to share my sister-in-law’s recent baby shower since it was oh-so-cute. I literally heard the word “cute” 1,500 times that day, but after seeing these pictures, I think you’ll understand why.
First off, the food. Boy, was it delicious. My mom was the architect behind this tablescape (hey, I give credit where credit is due!). She used lanterns, with some ribbon as accent, as a flower vase. Just insert a simple cylinder glass vase into the lantern and you have an easy centerpiece.
The cupcake table was quite a hit. The lime and aqua tablecloth hailed from Target (I believe) and the pom poms were made by mi madre (again, the architect. I just showed up). I of course made some food tags for all of this deliciousness that tied into the bunting theme – from the invitations to the decorations around the house.
What’s a shower without a candy bar now-a-days? I also whipped up some simple stickers for the candy bags that helped guide the guests on what a candy bar is all about. :)
And what’s a shower without a gift? I purchased this simple diaper bag from my sister-in-law’s registry. I know that she’s a fan of monograms, so I spent a few extra dollars to customize this for a personal touch. I opted for a last name rather than a baby name (thinking about longevity), and kept it simple so my brother could proudly carry the bag as well.
I also wrapped the gift in the colors of the shower (naturally) with some Paper Source paper and added a little pop of orange to make it a bit more boy-tastic. A simple bow of divine twine and this gift was ready to go.
How about a nursery reveal? I can safely say that I had nothing to do with this nursery, other than the carpet tile rug. My sister-in-law’s sister is an (amazing) artist, so they didn’t need my help whatsoever is making a fantastic nursery for my little nephew. The artist painted a custom monogram above the crib (did I mention the mom loves monograms?) as well as some custom artwork throughout the rest of the nursery. Everything, from the food and decorations to the nursery, was such a hit! Thoughts/comments on the green and blue explosion of cuteness?
